The position taken by Napoleon in the pre sent threatening European complication is not calculated to secure for him sympathy either in this country or in Europe. He pro poses to go to war on account of the eleva tion of a prince of Prussian extraction to the Spanish throne, and coupled with this threat the ' statement of the Spanish minister at Tarn that France opposes all nominations save that of the Prince of Asturias, the son cf the exiled Isabella. In the light of past events the Emperor of the French cuts a eorry figure in insisting that the people of Spain mu&t accept a Bourbon as their monarch, and that he will, by force of arms, prevent them from exercising freedom of choice among more acceptable can didates. "Who could have expected the repre sentative of the revolutionary Napoleons to Leoome the armed champion of the effete Bourbons, and to insist that, despite tho rigorous exclusion of the latter from France, they must rule the adjacent country of Spain in defiance of the protests of her people? The present Emperor has himself set at defi ance all the traditions and principles alike of the monarchists and republicans of Europe, lie threw down the gauntlet to the former when he was elected President of the French Republic of 1848, and he outraged the latter by the coup d'etat of 1851. He seeks to justify Lis assumptions of power by the allegation that he is sustained by the popular will of France, as declared in her one-sided elec tions, and yet he denies to Spain the privi lege of exercising this right of free suffrage under analogous circumstances. At the pre sent moment the war fever seems to rage fiercely in France, and the hatred and jealousy of Prussia, which have been intensified by her recent accessions of territory, make many Frenchmen anxious to measure swords with the Prussians, and to reassert French supre macy. If war ensues, however, by Napo leon's overt act, all the moving causes of the conflict will be carefully canvassed, and if it shall appear that Napoleon's dynastic fears and unprincipled intrigues, rather than Prussian ambition, provoked the struggle, he will be more apt to reap ignominy and danger than glory and safety from the strife. The attitude assumed by Prussia is dignified. "When she says she has nothing whatever to do with the controversy, and that it must be settled by Spain on her own responsibility, the onus is thrown on Napoleon of either com mencing war without sufficient provocation or of bullying the Spaniards into a rejection of Hohenzollern." If the Cortes decide against Lira on account of the Napeleonic bluster, a peaceful solution of the question will thus be speedily made. If, however, they elect him King, and Napoleon attempts to dethrone Lim by force of arms, in a campaign against Spain, he will disgust every liberal French man and become the laughing-stock of tho world, besides encountering the danger that the Spaniards, in a defensive contest, will prove as troublesome to him as they were to the founder of his dynasty. Prussia shows no disposition to precipitate a -conflict, dis placing rather an anxiety to avoid it if it can Le avoided honorably. If Napoleon, however, thrusts a conflict upon her, and she can satisfy the Germans that they are summoned to resist aggressive Napoleonic ambition, the French will find a foeman worthy of their steel, and the contest will be as likely to wind up with a Sadowa as a Solferino. THE SCI10EPPE CASE. The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania disposed of the Schoeppe case last week by refusing to open the judgment, and by directing that tho record should be remitted. Thus the original decision of the Cumberland county court is fully nd finally affirmed. The act framed by the last Legislature to give to the prisoner an opportunity for a full revision of all the proceedings which resulted in his condemna tion has not improved in the slightest his legal status. A jury of the vicinage in which Lis imputed crime was committed declared Lim to be guilty of murder, and the highest court of the State, after being empowered with authority to inquire into all the circum stances attending his trial, has found no cause to alter the original judgment. In the midst of the clamor made some months ago we expressed the opinion that Schoeppe's guilt had been clearly established, and the correctness of this opinion is now authoritatively affirmed. This decision again makes Governor Geary the sole arbiter of bchoeppe's fate. He had previously investi gated the proceedings without discovering any reason why the judgment of the Court Should be set aside, and if be adheres to the opinion which subsequent event.? have rather confirmed than weakened, Schoeppe's death-warrant will in the natural course of events soon be issued. No equally zealous effort to rescue a condemned murderer from the gallows was ever, before made in this Commonwealth, while few convictions were based on stronger evidence. If Geary was not proverbially fickle, Schoeppe's case would je unalterably determined by the action of the Supreme Court. It remains to be aeon, however, whether in this instance the Gov ernor will exercise his favorite privilege of Changing his mind, either by postponing Action or by issuing a pardon. THE FIREMEN'S It 10 TS YEBTERDA Y. TnE rioting and incendiarism with which this city was disgraced yesterday must con vince those who have doubted heretofore that the substitution of a paid fire department for the present volunteer system is demanded by every consideration of decency, economy, and public safety. Che volunteer department has done such good service in times past, and it has numbered in its ranks so many of the most esteemed and worthy citizens of Phila delphia, that many who saw the growing ne cessity for a change were loth to interfere with it. A great city like this, how ever, cannot afford to maintain in its midst an organization of men who will be able, whenever they may want a little excitement, or desire to gratify their bloodthirsty dispositions, to get up a riot like that of yesterday. All the evidence that has yet been adduced points conclusively to the fact that the outrages of yesterday were deliberately planned by the ruffianly element of the department, and the respect able firemen, for whose sake chiefly the present system has been submitted to so long, owe it to themselves that they shall unite with their fellow-citizens in denouncing the rioters, in endeavoring to bring them to punibhment, and in bringing about a radical reform wljioh will make such occur rences impossible in the future. There is no reason to doubt that both of the fires that occurred early on Sunday morning were the woik of incendiaries in the Fire Department. They were lighted by men who have made extensive claims upon the regards of tho pub lic, who have been subsidized from the pub lic treasury, and who had been granted various privileges on the ground that they undertake to protect the lives and property of the people of Philadelphia. Thousands of dollars' worth of property, however, were con sumed yesterday morning for no other pur pose than to afford gangs of ruffians au op portunity to start a riot, which was kept up almost without intermission during nearly the whole of the Sabbath. It is not necessary for us to go into tho details of the riot in this place, nnd it is enough for us to recognize it as the culmina tion of a long series of outrages that show the litter demoralization of tho volunteer de partment. The firemen have been warned again and again that it depended upon them selves entirely whether a paid .department would be established, but tho decent men among them have been utterly unable to con trol the ruffianly element, and between the incendiarism, thieving, and rioting that have characterized the volunteer department of late years, the people of Philadelphia have had quite enough of it, and now demand that a change shall be made. A large portion of the blame of the present demoralization among the firemen is charge able to Councils, who have never given that Bupport to the orderly and respectable men that they were entitled to. It is nearly use less to suspend a company for rioting or other bad conduct, for an application to Councils for reinstatement and the refunding of the appropriation forfeited by suspension is almost invariably considered with favor, and a direct premium is thus paid for bad con duct. This sort of thing will continue so long as the present system of extinguishing fires lasts,and'the only way to produce a com plete and radical reform is to abolish the volunteer department at once and forever, and establish a corps of men, under the immediate orders of the munici pal authorities, who will make the extinguishing of fires the business of their lives, and not the amusement of their idle hours. A great city like this cannot afford to run the risk of having its Sabbaths dese crated, its property destroyed, and its citi zens outraged by bands of ruffians; and all the arguments against the increased expense of a paid fire department are of no moment what ever, if a few thousand dollars per annum will insure us against the repetition of such scenes as those of yesterday. Councils have adjourned for the summer, but we believe that the Mayor would meet the wishes of a very large majority of the people of Philadel phia if he would call a special session for the purpose of taking action upon this matter immediately; but whether he does so or not, it is sincerely to be hoped that no effort will be spared to discover and bring to justice the ringleaders in the riots of yesterday. Unless this is done there will be no security whatever for life or property, and every citizen will feel that his family and his goods are at the mercy of gangs of ruffians, whose opportunities for mischief are only equalled by their propensity to commit it. THE IN COME -T A X INFAMY. It seems settled now that the fruitful parent of fraud in our revenue system, the unjust, inquisitorial, and odious income tax, mast bo continued another year. The bill may get to a committee of conference; but, unfor tunately, the tax on incomes has been ac cepted by both houses, and will not be 6tricken out by the committee. "What is most mortifying to the great masses of the people is the fact that the Senate, by a decided vote, when the body was nearly full, declared against this oppressive and objectionable tax, and afterwards, in a thin Senate, by the help of artful bt cowardly dodgers, it was re stored. No reason was given to the nation for this 6tiange action of the Senate. No public necessity could be pleaded in justifica tion of the act. It was done almost without debate, and at a time when a number of the leading opponents of the measure were absent. Hut the trick was so transparent and the restoration so utterly inexcusable, that those who did it were shamed into allow ing a reconsideration; and on the test vote of rescinding the action of tho Sonate on con tinuing the income tax there was a tie 2(1 to 'Jti. What is especially humiliating tot he busi ness men of Philadelphia is the fact that Mutator Cameron dodged the vote and thereby aUoxc(d the income tax tu remain in the bill. He cannot plead that the vote was unex pected, nor can he claim (hut ha was not in or near to the Senate. His name appears in 1 the proceedings of the Senate but a short time before the vote was taken, and he must have left with the full knowledge that the test vote on the income tax was soon to be taken. While there was any possible danger of restoring the tax on gross . receipts, to im-A pair the revenues of his vast railroad and other corporate interests, he was faith fully at his post; but when that danger was over, he retreated from the Senate to enable a minority to reimpose upon the peo ple the most iniquitous and offensive tax ever inflicted upon any nation. It is not disguised that the income tax was re-en act ell to enable corporations to escape the tax on gross re ceipts, and the conviction is wide-spread that corrupt combinations of interested parties have made the interests of the people subor dinate to private peculation. In this combi nation, of whatever character it may have been, Senator Cameron was certainly a chief manager, and instead of meeting the issue manfully, he skulked away, leaving to a few Northern Senators and the carpet-baggers the distasteful and disgraceful task. The tax upon gross receipts, in which Senator Cameron and other speculative Sena tors and politicians are so deeply interested, does not open wide the doors of fraud. Cor porations cannot well make false returns of their gross earnings, but individuals can commit the most flagrant frauds upon the Government in returning incomes. Senator Cameron, reputed one of the most opulent men of the State, owns, under oath, to less than $7."0() of revenue subject to income tax, $.'000 of which is Senatorial salary. We do not assume that he returned his income falsely; but if he did not, his in come must be mainly from divi dends and interest on corporation stocks and bonds, which are directly and greatly affected by the tax on gross receipts. Whichever explanation may be the true one, his Senatorial action, after pretending to op pose the income tax, is none ike less dis graceful to himself and humiliating to his State. By his failure to vote when he had knowledge that the test was soon to come, the nation is made to suffer the most grievous of all the necessitous war measures, and that, too, when tho statement of the Treasury was just issued, showing over $ 20, 000, 000 of the debt had been paid in a single month. To the deliberate skulking of Senator Ca meron, apparently actuated by his great in terest in releasing other sources of taxation, are we indebted for the re-enactment of the only tax that is inquisitorial in its operation, that endangers individual credit, that invites every scoundrel to defraud the Government, and that is odious to nineteen-twentieths of the loyal people of the country. By Came ron's cowardly refusal to vote on the question, a horde of greedy official cormorants are con tinued to inquire into the private business of the people and waste their substance. Almost with one accord the leading Republican, press of the great business and commercial sections protest against it, and thousands of earnest Republicans feel that they have been corruptly betrayed by a ring of speculators, and that Senator Cameron is the author of the wrong. Upon him the responsibility must rest, and whatever the political consequenoes may be will be chargeable to the chief po litical trickster who has climbed into the Senate through political prostitution and de bauchery, to shame the noblest and best State of the Union. A large mass of documents was transmit ted to the Senate on Saturday relating to the confiscation of American property and the unlawful imprisonment of American citi zens by the Spanish authorities in Cuba. It appears from the accompanying correspon dence between Secretary Fish and the Spa nish Minister at Washington, that the chances of obtaining prompt redress in these and similar cases has recently been dimin ished by the withdrawal, from the latter, of the authority to grant it in response to the requests of the American Government. Thus the old difficulties in our relations with Cuba, which have grown out of the delays resulting from the transmission and retransmission of despatches from Havana to Washington, from Washington to Madrid, and from Madrid to Havana, are now re-established under irri tating circumstances. Mr. Fish has directed General Sickles to remonstrate against this unjust policy, and we hope his remonstrances will induce Spain to adopt a more judicious course. In the present state of publio feel ing, the Hidalgoes cannot afford to inflict new outrages on American citizens. If they attempt to postpone redress indefinitely for the wrongs perpetrated by their officials, Free Cuba stock may suddenly rise far be yond their anticipations. They have discovered a new lake in Canada, in the vicinity of Caledonia Springs, and chris tened it Lake Arthur. It is not the one from which King Arthur's famous sword Escali bar was thrust lortn by a lair nymph, but re ceives its name from the wandering Prince of later times. It is about a mile wide and three quarters of a mile wide, and abounds with fish. More people are killed by lightnintr than is commonly supposed. According to some re cently published statistics more than 10,000 peo ple have been smitten by the electric fluid with in the past thirty years, of whom 2253 were killed outright. The fiery bolts, however, seem to make a distinction on account of sex, for of the bbO killed within the last ten years, only 213 were females. SPECIAL.
